In an article published last year, a third of men and women think it is okay for men to beat their wives, 90% of people are biased against women and there were other statistics of other things of inequality. We live in a world where too many women think men are better than women. Perhaps these women think that they are in fact equal to men, or indeed it was only a specific class of women who might be equal, or perhaps not - I don't know - but I would love to know how these women's opinion of their equality to men and their opinion of other women's equality.
In that article it said that the opinions of women's equality is getting worse, in general too, even in more 'liberal' countries. I suspect this is part of the right-wing narrative that the world has been enmeshed in, where the right have taken too many liberties with reality which results in driving the hierarchical social system.
The fundamental problem seems to be that women seem to be playing catch up all the time. And that men are all naturally better at anything/everything they turn their hands to whether it is business or academia... whatever - the only thing women can be better at - is being an ornament, being a mother, and if they are a mother - if they aren't the best mother ever then they are worthless human beings. Indeed, this article suggests women (in India) are raised to be selfless - but I wouldn't say it was only India. For centuries women have given up their lives to give birth and that is treated like it is expected. To this day women routinely die as a result of childbirth.
I find this when I see statements like: men shouldn't write computer code, because in general, men aren't good at all the details. The men get upset about being told they are incompetent, and I have seen women attack women who make such statements. Damn, men stick up for men - as we see all through out our legal system. It is time women stick up for women. And on that note, I believe Evan Rachel Wood and her allegations against Marilyn Manson and the other women who have made similar claims too.
And I believe this article too - that the research women do is thought to be inferior to the research men do. I have seen women trash women in academia too often - instead of taking them aside and asking them - turning them into the butt of jokes. Women can be truly awful to other women.
The irony is is that men do all the worst things - pollute water, start wars, do most of the murder, stealing yet women must be exceptional at the few things they are allowed to be good at. And even then women are ignored.
